The start/finish could be at the Sierra Motor Sports shop in Grass Valley. From there we'd run out to the You Bet Road area, up into the Chalk Bluff area (with lots of side options around Buckeye for fun offroad riding on the big bikes - even some big-bike-approved single-track if folks care to try it), the out to Highway 20 and drop down into Washington (maybe Alpha Road), then out to North Bloomfield, back through Nevada City, and back to the start/finish.
This is a very general (read: vauge) route, but it can be added/subtracted accordingly to fit the abilities of the group (and available time). I realize this may be common for those who live up here, but for those not from this area it would be interesting.
Then again, if someone else tosses out another option I am game for that as well.
I like the sound of that. I have not ridden Chalk Bluff yet and have wanted to. I am always looking to expand my abilities on the bike too, so singletrack sounds fun. I have ridden Alpha down to Washington on a mountain bike, boy did that warm up the brakes!
